We’ve stayed here before. Not far from Hot Springs, good paved roads. Nice level sites. All campsites have gone up to $25/night for both full and partial hookups. Be aware the dump station is still broken not a problem if you are in Loop C with full hookups and they suggest you use an empty site in Loop C to dump your tanks. The problem with that is there were no empty sites the whole time we were there. Beautiful swimming area. We met people who drove over from other Campgrounds and paid the day use fee to swim. They were camping at Debby Point COE and a place called Crystal Springs. Ranger patrols all day and in the evenings checking up as does the campground host. We spent most days down at the swimming area. We camped in a motor home. And we will definitely go back. Sites are not reserved but first come first serve. Two tent areas. I think tent sites are $10/night. Bathhouses are clean and have hot water in showers and flush toilets. Cell service is with AT&T and rarely did I have a signal in the campsite but no problem at the swimming area or down at the bridge.

A national forest campground with a stream and small swimming lake. Mostly RV oriented but we tent camped. The tent sites did not have tent pads and were not flat, the RV sites had level tent pads but they were filled with inch gravel - less than an ideal tent base. We set up our free-standing tent on a smooth asphalt RV pad. Attractive, clean, quiet campground with a host on each loop. Our CG host was extremely friendly and helpful; said he enforced quiet hours. Despite rather crowded sites, we heard nothing but the stream babbling that night. This is as good as it gets in a developed campground.

Site prices vary by amenities: $10 - $22, with $5 discount for Senior passport. The tent sites were $10 (or $5) if you want to sleep on a slope. Camp filled up by 7 pm on a Friday night on a perfect weather April weekend.

No cell coverage by T-Mobile, or I doubt any other.
